The CRAFTA® curriculum is the result of the consensus of various dental and physical therapy specialists. The courses are updated every 6 months and follow as much as possible the European accreditation guidelines (Bologna recommendations).
The courses include theoretical and practical components, as well as case studies and live patient presentations (depending on country regulations). The final goal is to educate high quality specialists by presenting current models of thinking and techniques for patients with headaches, face and neck dysfunctions and pain, wherever possible based on scientific evidence.
All courses are based upon the books by Dr. Harry J. M. von Piekartz
